Sorry, but dogs are not allowed anywhere on the beach or boardwalk in Ocean City anytime between 1 May and 30 September. Leashed dogs are allowed in OC's many parks year round. There is also a Dog Park on 94th Street. See this site for how to access the dog park.

Dogs are allowed in certain areas of Assateague National Seashore. See the Assateague National Seashore regulations here.

the only place that dogs are allowed on the beach is the Assateague Island National park.  Dogs are allowed at Northside Park on 125th St (bayside)

They are allowed at Northside Park though all year.  It is a great park for dogs and people alike.  :)

No they are not.  Dogs are only permitted on the beach and on the boardwalk from October 1 until April 30 of each year.  From May 1 until September 31 they are prohibited and must be on a leash at all times when out in public.  There are fines if your dog is caught on the beach or boardwalk from May to October.
